Thread: Fireworks Experiment (not the program)

  1. #1

    Fireworks Experiment (not the program)

    Like fireworks fireworks, not macromedia fireworks.

    It's extremely CPU-intensive, though... lots and lots of particles. Maybe someone can optimize if possible? I would, but I think it's at its best with my limited knowledge.

    I'd love for an swf (can't compile it, only live with mx)

    Nice. My suggestions are to possibly sharpen it up a bit, and maybe increase the frame-rate when they're falling.

    Other than that, very impressive. Much better than what I could do.

    Thanks.

    The framerate's actually set to 36 fps. It's the alpha-channel processing that takes a whole load of CPU, dropping the fps.
    That, and a whole lot of floating-point math.

    Very nice One strange thing though: most of the fireworks shoot out of the visible area

    Jesus Christ, that's one awesome effect !

    I'm up for optimizing !
    Wait, what?

    Yeah, I love the effect you made! If you could make that a little smoother, I would have to say that that would be the best fireworks script ive seen!

    (maybe add a color change kind of like voet's fireworks??)

    Voets is working on the smoothness, hope he can get somewhere with it.

    Could you by any means provide an MX version? Or post the code?

    wow that's nice.... on low quality it runs a bit better and doesn't look much worse

    Very cool! Where the heck were you two months ago?

    There wasn't much to optimize really - the CPU intensivity is just because of the many alpha animations and the amount of movieclips. I had it subtract and divide instead of add and multiply where possible for a slight speed increase, but the code itself is quite fine.

    Oh and, I made the alpha animations slightly faster, but not losing the effect.
